Need advice on this cortisone shot I just got

Posted by salina on 9/22/00 at 17:53 (028900)

I got a cortisone shot in the right foot this morning. Its been about three hours.
But I forgot to ask him what I should do now.
My foot is so sore, I am afraid to even put any weight on it.
Now the doctor is not in, its friday, so I need to know if i should try to resume walking on it, even though it hurts.
Or, should I stay off it as much as possible?

Hurry, need to have this in writing before hubby comes home and I get to tell him he has to watch the kids for me. thanks
